Nice picture!! Maddie as drawn is absolutely adorable. It would be nice if she had some luck with Keith, provided Natani permits it. (I wonder though, after stowing away, would she be considered A.W.O.L, or worse, a deserter)
I've seen the finished version of this. Maddie Addie is quite the cutey. Though I have to wonder. Being a footpaw fan, I couldn't help but notice that both her and Keith have three toes on each foot instead of the usual four. Was that a mistake or is that an intentional anatomical revision for the Basitin species?
Actually, most people probably haven't noticed, but Keith original had three toes on each foot, all the way up to they get on the boat in chapter nine. Basitin were meant to have three to make them distinct from Keidran, and sorta give them a fluffy, rabbit-footed look to go with their big ears. Unfortunately, I was having trouble drawing them at the time, so eventually I just sorta gave up and made them the same as Keidran for the sake of simplicity.
But recently, looking back I've been kinda reconsidering that decision, so I thought it'd be fun to try going back to the old ways. You can see examples of Keith with three toes in these comics: [link][link]
I see. It's been a while since I read the old chapters, so I didn't really notice. I prefer the four toed paws myself, but it does make the Basitin a little more distinct compared to the Keidran. So I'll have no problem if you draw them with three toes in future.
I noticed it too immediately Personally I like better the 4 toed version. By the way you did a very good job with the colored version. Maddie is the cutest girl I ever seen here. I'm the biggest fan of her!
